That is a cool idea! Do you do Pinterest? I'd set up a board and I bet you can search a lots of fun ideas there.

Here's some from the top of my head:

Visit 60 of something you're interested in (restaurants, towns, parks, etc.)
Collect 60 souvenirs/postcards
Photos of 60 important places/people you visit

Just a few more:
-ride quads on beach dunes
-go ziplining
-climb a mountain (find a 'short' one! )
-go to a paint and sip class
-build a bear at Build A Bear Workshop
-catch a concert at a fabulous venue like Red Rocks or Vegas
-go gold panning or mining

I think I will borrow this idea when I turn 60 in four years! What a great way to mark a new decade in your life!

I love this idea too! I'm right behind you, it'll be the Six word for me in November. I can't understand how this has happened since I'm really only about 35 in my heart.

If you don't do it already, work out regularly until you can do 60 minutes at a time.

Perhaps do things from your childhood...

get ice cream from an ice cream truck?
run under the sprinkler?
play mini-golf?
play marbles, checkers, or go fish?

Watch 60 episodes of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. Listen to music from the 60's and dance. Go get 60 pieces of candy you liked as a child but don't eat it all at once. Have a party for yourself and invite 60 friends and relatives.

How about 60 acts of kindness?
-Build a home with Habitat for Humanity
-Knit or crochet hats for preemies/newborns
-shop for a family or classrom in need
-take donuts to the local firehouse
-help clean up an historic cemetery
-travel to the beach and help clean it up/pick up trash

You get the idea!

I agree with 2teach2: ziplining! Anyone can do it and it is super fun! Happy birthday--I love your plan.
